|Your Hit Parade - May 2, 1951 (Music/Variety)|
An episode of "Your Hit Parade", a music-themed TV series in which the cast performed the hit songs of the week and a couple of "extras". This episode is a bit of a "off-episode", not up to usual standards. Songs include: "Mockin Bird Hill", "Sparrow in the Treetops", "Be My Love", "How High the Moon", "On Top of Old Smoky" (a dreadful rendition), "Would I Love You" and "If". Some severe sound issues during the closing credits and Lucky Strike jingle.
